  1. Needs tweaks, but it's a blast
    by Michael Yanovich, USA - Mar 2nd 2014

    I just got this, and really love it overall. But yes, it needs some interface tweaks.

    For instance: need to be able to skip the opening graphics. After the 20th time, I don't need to be reminded that it's Feral, and 2K, and the Unreal engine. Seriously, let me skip this!

    Need to be able to restart a level without having to go back to a saved game.

    Skip cut scenes for sure.

    But aside from those needed interface tweaks, I am really enjoying the game. A good, strategy-oriented Warcraft (no twitch reflexes needed).

  2. 4.5, AWESOME, Multiplayer doesnt work??
    by daisyborat, USA - Mar 1st 2014

    This game is awesome, the tie in of "GOD MODE" down to POV movement and shots make it interesting and its done very well. The units are fun, the whole idea of the game is awesome, strategy, economic, science, etc. You can advance faster by risking and capturing enemies, thats awesome.

    This GAME CRASHES A LOT, it glitches about every 15 min, and crashes about every 90min, so very annoying. There are a few things that are dumb, just not very intuitive, like when you want to get new upgrades for weapons, it doesnt tell you exactly what your upgrade is, you have to research it, then buid it, then click on it and see what it did, thats sort of a silly thing. The voice acting is repeative and childish, "OW IM A SCIENTIST DONT BE A DUMB SOILDER" "ow im a soilder sit down sister" bla bla bla, super cliche and annoying.

    This game has an AMAZING FOUNDATION of innovative and fun play, but the glitching and crashing and the other silly things just make it a 4.5 instead of a 5. I hope they do more games like this, i hope another one comes out. Especially witha multiplayer option that actually works.
